    “Lovely stay, thank you for the welcome pack.”

    The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable, location is great for exploring the coast and close to Minehead and Dunster.

The property

Located at the centre of the action of the traditional village of Carhampton, this charming white-washed terraced dwelling offers an ideal base for exploring the delights of Somerset and North Devon.

With three equally delightful bedrooms, the property is perfect for a group of friends or family to enjoy a holiday in a friendly community nestled between the countryside and the coast.

Hang your coats up in the hallway and come through to the back of the property where you will find the kitchen/diner, home to all the appliances you could possibly need for a week-long stay, this area of the house makes a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee at the rustic wooden breakfast bar.

Relax in the sitting room where you will find ample seating to choose from, comprising a sofa, two chairs and a chaise lounge, meaning the whole group can gather together to enjoy each other’s company.

The kitchen and sitting room tables fit together for a more formal dining arrangement, seating six comfortably.

For a spot of quiet time, take a book from the bookshelf and step into the multi-level garden offering a tranquil spot to enjoy the fresh country air, as well as making a great area to bring everyone together in the evenings whilst huddled around the fire pit for that extra bit of warmth on a summer’s evening.

When the evening draws to a close, retreat to the first floor where you will find three bright and airy bedrooms to choose from; consisting of a double with an en-suite shower room, a king-size and a double serviced by a shared shower room, you can be sure that each of these rooms is as delightful as the next, all boasting a mix of contemporary and vintage finds and luxury linens.

There is a village pub and the welcoming village shop and post office stocks all the essentials.

Exmoor rises almost from the back door of the cottage.

Put your boots on and within ten minutes you will be walking through the deer park with Dunster Castle beckoning you on.

This historic village is well worth exploring.

In the other direction, Blue Anchor beach is a two-mile walk across the fields.

If you time it well, you may see a magnificently restored steam train puff into the wonderfully nostalgic station at Blue Anchor.

Spend a day at the beach at Minehead, or travel slightly inland to explore better the wonders of Lorna Doone country; no matter how you choose to spend your holiday, 3 Elm Cottage makes a wondrous base to return to after your days of adventure.

About the location


Dunster 1.6 miles; Minehead 4 miles.

Carhampton is an attractive village close to the Exmoor National Park, with a church, pub, village store, community orchard and Post Office. There are lovely walks from the village, over the deer park to Dunster, and through farmland to the beach. The village is less than 4 miles from the popular seaside resort of Minehead, which occupies a wonderful sheltered spot beneath the dramatic North Hill, on the lovely West Somerset coast. This welcoming town boasts a mile-long esplanade, providing a wonderful backdrop to the golden beach, whilst the pretty harbour, visited in the summer by the famous paddle steamer Waverley, offers excellent fishing opportunities. Enjoy a nostalgic steam train journey from the seafront on the West Somerset Railway, or visit Blenheim Gardens, winner of many awards for its beautiful floral displays. Renowned for the largest herd of red deer in England, Exmoor National Park with its wooded valleys, pretty bridle paths and heather-clad moors, is well worth a visit, whilst the magnificent Norman Castle at nearby Dunster is a must.
